Alicja Kwade solo exhibition opens at De appel
A new solo exhibition by Alicja Kwade opens tomorrow at De Appel Arts Center in Amsterdam.
From 6 February till 10 April de de Appel arts centre presents the solo exhibition by Alicja Kwade.
Bend. Break. Stack. Mirror. Visual artist Alicja Kwade (DE) uses different strategies in her work, based on thorough scientific-artistic research. She manipulates everyday objects and materials – a pallet, a bicycle, a door, a nightlight, a mirror – and turns them into new shapes which she presents as separate sculptures or installations. The result often feels introverted and formal, but also frequently has a humoristic undertone. Kwade creates sensory illusions that test our thought and perception. She pushes the viewer to contemplate the nature of objects and to question what is actually really ‘true’ in the reality that surrounds us.
This exhibition is curated by Marc-Olivier Wahler
Opening hours exhibition: Tuesdays through Sundays from 11AM – 6PM.
The exhibition is made possible with the support of the KÖNIG GALERIE Berlin
